Support sophomore and junior business students by sharing your career insights. The Mentor Program is co-sponsored by the Marquette University Business Administration Alumni Association and the Business Career Center. Each year, 300+ students and professionals participate and build productive relationships. Mentors are Marquette alumni and friends who are business leaders in Milwaukee and Chicago area firms. Resources are available to support new and returning mentors in their mentoring role with College of Business Administration students.

Time Commitment & Events
Monthly Communication: Students Drive the Relationship
It is expected that the mentor and student protégé meet a minimum of one time per month for one hour during the Fall and Spring semesters. Each student protégé is responsible for driving this program – meaning that the student needs to take an active role in contacting his/her mentor and planning meeting times.
